4. ICAN’S WISH LIST

Want to give us a hand with training supplies? Here is our wish list! We encourage contributors to purchase from Petsmart, Specks, Pet Supplies ”Plus” and 3 Dog Bakery as these businesses have been extremely supportive of ICAN. The items are specific because we monitor the type of treats fed to the dogs to avoid stomach problems and allergies. We stay away from rawhide due to digestion issues, and soft toys as dogs tend to pull them apart which puts us at risk of getting unwanted items in their tummy! Questions? Contact Sean at sean@icandog.org or call 317-672-3862.

5. SPONSOR AN ICAN ”GRADUATING CLIENT CANINE TEAM” FOR OUR 10 DAY TEAM TRAINING & GRADUATION IN JUNE & DECEMBER

Once the dog and client match has been made, they come to the Indiana Women’s Prison for ten days of training to learn how to work with their dog from the handler. At the end of the ten days, we celebrate by having an ICAN Graduation Ceremony at the Indiana Women’s Prison. A sponsorship of $750 will absorb the training materials, equipment, supplies, lunches, and graduation costs for a ”Client Canine Team.” If you are interested, contact dino@icandog.org or call 317-672-3862

There are many more opportunities that you as an individual or business can become a partner with ICAN. To learn more, please contact Dino at dino@icandog.org or call 317-672-3864.

6. FUNDRAISING IDEAS FOR CHILDREN

We have a number of FUNdraising ideas to assist children in raising money for ICAN. If it’s something to do with dogs, then people will come to support it! So keep that in mind when doing your fundraiser and how you can incorporate ICAN’s mission on training service dogs. We will work with you to educate others about our work and also explain how service dogs are different from emotional support or therapy dogs, how they are trained, who trains them, etc. Click Here to Learn More about How Children can Support ICAN!
